when your friends are marine biologists sometimes you tap into your own biology degree memories and go out into freezing cold water and have a peek. lowest tides of the year in the gulf of maine. fun flounderin around. seriously tho, there were a lot of flounders. weird little flat buddies with two eyes on one side. also seen were some invasive seaweed species (the red stuff) mixed with some horsetail kelp (laminaria digitata), bladder wrack (which we harvested and made smelly seaweed masks out of later – very skin tightening quality to it surprisingly), Irish moss, and of course beautiful green sea lettuce.
